|''The Colgate Comedy Hour'' - 20 January 1952|
Comedy television from over 60 years ago. Eddie Cantor stars in this atypical episode. Original 1952 commercials intact. A bit of blackface "mammy" stuff towards the end (don't worry, many other episodes of the series did feature actual Black acts). A nice 1950s relic.

|The Colgate Comedy Hour - 1 April 1951|

According to an article in Variety magazine from 14 November 1951, the series cost $40,000 per an episode to produce ...
